Movies at the Palace 2024 Kicks Off Tonight with the Theme "Season of Friendship"

Free Movies Are Back at the Historic United Palace in Washington Heights. Here's How to Get Tickets.
The United Palace on Broadway and 175th Street in Washington Heights.

Movies at the Palace 2024 kicks off tonight with the first of nine screenings under the theme "Season of Friendship."

The series, taking place at the United Palace in Washington Heights, begins with the 1955 classic "Rebel Without a Cause" on Friday, March 15 at 8pm.

Attendees are encouraged to wear 1950s attire in the spirit of the James Dean drama.

Tickets ($5) can be reserved on the United Palace website.

The "Season of Friendship" theme, chosen earlier this year by the theater's fans, continues with "Duck Soup" on May 19. The rest of the movies, listed here, don't have dates yet.

To be clear, this film series is separate from the one hosted by friend and patron Lin-Manuel Miranda, which began last month. The actor will not be in attendance.

Movies at the Palace also offers a unique opportunity to see the landmark venue's spectacularly decorated interior up-close.

Built in 1930, the United Palace was one of five Loew’s “Wonder Theatres" and includes a 3,000-plus-seat auditorium.
